Project Summary

Contextual government quarter development

A new government precinct to accommodate all Hungarian ministries is planned in the nation’s capital.

The Contextual government quarter development extended the brief to include economic, environmental and social objectives in an integrated concept that would give a neglected area of the city new horizons. The result is a comprehensive approach to urban renewal.

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching
